Another birthday rolled around (March 30). It seems like I just had one a month ago although last year we went to the Maldives for my birthday which refreshes my mind. We didn’t do anything much except go out to lunch this year.

We went to the Bistro Valois which has two large terraces that were covered and heated as it hasn’t warmed up much in Paris. It was nice to sit on these fur lined seats under heaters.

I had a kir to celebrate and a yummy shrimp and avocado salad.

Maurice brought me a beautiful bouquet of tulip looking very springlike.

After lunch we walked in the nearby Palais Royal with its famous Buren columns.

I was happy to see flowers and trees in bloom there.
